Trump attorney Jay Sekulow's family has been paid millions from charities they control - 2017-06-27
President Trump's personal attorney Jay Sekulow was on his weekday radio show earlier this month, defending the president vociferously, when he took a pause to highlight a charity that has brought Sekulow and his family millions of dollars.
"Let me take off the hat of the president's lawyer and put on the ACLJ hat," he said, using the acronym for the American Center for Law and Justice. His June 16 program then cut to a plea for donations from audience members listening on 850 stations nationwide. "Now, more than ever," a narrator said, "you need the ACLJ on your side."
The segment illustrates how Sekulow, the most visible member of the legal team defending Trump in the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, is poised to capitalize on his new role.
